SOLO Accuracy

Accuracy is the most important asset you can find when looking for a proposal platform to use. SOLO is constantly changing and adapting our platform software to ensure we provide the best accuracy in shading, setbacks, panel placement, and pricing details on the proposal we deliver to our clients. Such accuracy in every aspect of the proposal is paramount, as sales representatives and clients are able to close more deals and increase their rate of client installation.

NREL Software Integration

SOLO uses NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory) certified software with artificial intelligence and solar mapping to ensure accuracy and reliable analysis; this ensures that SOLO, above all competitors, will deliver accurate analysis and results. When a sales rep creates a customer in the SOLO system, the address gets sent over to NREL where the calculations immediately begin. NREL research and development, using real-time photovoltaic analysis and solar resource testing along with resources such as weather stations, panels, shading inputs, Azimuth, and tilt, also provides us with the information we need to make your solar system last the longest possible, at the cheapest price. NREL provides the perfect software for ensuring accuracy; to ensure effective and efficient placement of solar panels, NREL teams use certified AI drones to scan and analyze homes and solar placements. According to NREL, “this will reduce the time investment of planning and analysis that today requires many human hours”.

Clear & Concise Visual Understanding

Not only this, but SOLO has a direct connection to Google’s Project SunRoof. This helps both sales reps and customers gain a better visual understanding of TSRF (total solar resource fraction) on their very own roof. The detailed analysis from Project Sunroof helps Reps determine the best placement of panels to both optimize solar production and reduce shading on the customer’s home. SOLO also has direct access to DSM (digital surface modeling) provided by Google, which is utilized for tilt, azimuth, and available space for panels. Going along with seamless visual representation for both reps and clients, SOLO has access to multiple image services such as Google Image, Google 3D, and Nearmaps that serve to give a wide variety of options to get the best view of the home in order to analyze variants such as heat signatures and shading.

PV System Reliability

Reliability of PV systems is also vital in solar installation. NREL specializes in “PV reliability research and development” that will provide SOLO with the tools we need to “improve PV product lifetime, availability, and performance and decrease the operation and maintenance costs of PV systems”. This uses scientific studies to make sure the PV systems we install don’t degrade or fail over time, making sure we are providing the best of the best to our clients. “Real-time photovoltaic analysis and solar resource testing” accelerates the testing, analytics, and installation of our solar system for our clients. Each panel and Inverter that we enter into SOLO will use every detail within the data sheet, from dimensions to degradation, ensuring customers will get the most accurate results from PVWatts.

Speed, accuracy, and reliability. SOLO provides all of this and more in a dynamic proposal that is live in minutes with custom branding, remote presentation capabilities, integrated lending options, instant “in-proposal” updates, and live chat.

The SOLO all-in-one ops service of proposals, integrated doc management, and next day turnarounds on CAD & Engineering streamline the sales process, optimizing deal closure and efficiency.

SOLO’s Solar Proposal

SOLO’s Solar Proposal

The First Step To Making A Solar Sale

 

 

The proposal: the first point of contact for a solar sale, and the most vital step to a successful solar sale. When making the decision on whether or not solar energy is right for them, customers need information; they need statistics, they need reports, and they need professional, quick informative delivery. This is the role of the proposal; from the moment a representative makes contact with an interested customer, a proposal is needed to aid the customer in making an educated choice. 

 

The best part? No more waiting. With Solo, we deliver proposals live in minutes, complete with interactive, customizable data and visuals. Through our proposals, your sales representatives will be able to calculate the system price, help their customers apply for a loan internally, and break down total savings instantly, hand-delivering the information to customers in-home. The best part? Your representatives will have a fully configured proposal in minutes: our proposalists are on standby through live chat to reconfigure your proposal as needed, updating pricing, system adders, or revamping the design to fit you and your customer’s needs on a whim. Even further, the flexibility and interactive aspects of the proposal give power to the reps, allowing them to edit features of the proposal to best appeal to their customers.

 

Elements of our unique proposals include:

  • A design customized for each company’s branding style
  • A scaled photo of the solar design on a satellite image of the home
  • Detailed information on the system including module type, system size, yearly production, and inverter used
  • Comparative data contrasting energy consumption with and without solar
  • A breakdown of the cost, including a levelized cost per kWh to calculate the new solar utility bill, with the option to apply for the system loan internally
  • A savings report compiled using customer information and local solar pricing

 

The solar proposal is your customer’s first impression of the solar world: make sure it’s a good one. Go Solo.
